This was by far one of the best Rita's I have ever been to. They offer a huge variety of flavors, including italian ice and cream ice which changes daily. While the Rita's I normally go to is quite stingy on custard, these workers are...More

If you like Italian ice what more can you say than Yum! Many favors and gelato as well. They usually only have one sugar free Italian ice.

Rita's is right next to Vinnies and Pat's and so you have the best of both worlds. We had the mango Italian ice and the cookies and cream custard mix, both were delicious.

This location usually has a good selection of flavors compared to the Mt Joy location. The pina colada is one of my favorites. I wish Rita's would bring back the regular watermelon. The new jolly rancher watermelon has an odd taste. This location has a...More

It was a nice place with friendly staff. I was a bit surprised they didn't have cherry ices....that shocked me. The ices were ok, but reminded me more of a slushy than Italian ice.

Their gelatos and ices are delicious, never had a shake, so I tried one (next to last day they were open for the season). Very good flavor and consistency. Mango is my personal favorite as far as the ices go.

Expensive but draws a crowd. A large variety of flavored ice and always paying more than we should. I would suggest some other local places for families.

This was my first visit in years, but grandchildren prompted me to go again. I had a tiny cup of custard & ice. Granddaughter had just a slushy—I mean ice. The bill was over eight dollars! How people afford this, I can't imagine. It was...More
